When moving multiple transactions Quicken shouldn't prompt on every reconciled transaction

If you use move or cut and paste to move transactions from one register to another Quicken will prompt you on every reconciled transaction if you want to do it.  When moving multiple transactions the user should be able to select to do repeat the answer to that question for all the rest of the moves.

    Simple way to avoid this:
    • First block-select the transactions you want to move.
    • Change them from "Reconciled" to "Cleared" or "Not reconciled": Right-click any highlighted transaction. Select Reconcile Status, select desired new status from popup.
    • Block-select transactions again.
    • Move them.
    • Go to the destination account register.
    • Block-select the just moved transactions and mark them "Reconciled".
    Note: When moving transactions from one account register to another, never move the Opening Balance transaction. There should only be one Opening Balance transaction in an account register ever. Edit Date and Amount of the existing Opening Balance transaction as needed.

    You call that "simple"? I call it a PITA. And it fails if some, but not all, of the transactions are reconciled. Step 2 loses the cleared/reconciled states and you'd have to print a report so you could restore them.
    This suggestion has my vote.

    The very fact that you have to have a FAQ for the workaround and in this case even your second method of workaround it should be a red flag to everyone that it isn't right.

    Despite the lukewarm reception, this request should be  implemented.
    A single prompt should suffice for a block-move operation.

    I still support this idea. It seems clear there is a confirmation step inside the loop which should either be moved outside the loop or allow a single confirmation to bypass further multiple confirmations.
